Scott tells Luke that since he wants to be convicted of murder he doesn't want to give him what he wants.

Jax gets a call from someone who had the car Jax had rented checked out to see what caused it to break down. He tells him that the mechanic that looked at it said someone pulled some wires from the hood and that means someone didn't want him to go anywhere. Jax hides what he found out from Sam and tells her that the call was from the funeral home concerning arrangements for his father's funeral. He decides to try to make her feel guilty by casually mentioning that if the car hadn't broken down, he may have been able to get to his father in time and prevented his death. He continues on about it. Sam tells him he needs to stop blaming himself for his father's death. Jax turns around and looks at her and tells her he blames her not himself. She realizes he found out about the car. He confronts her about pulling the wires on his rental car and preventing him from getting to his father in time. He accuses her of also seducing him to keep him from being suspicious of her. He tells her that he should have trusted his instincts and never got involved with her from the beginning. Sam doesn't deny what she did and tells him that she never would have pulled the wires on the car if she knew what would happen to his father. She also tells him that they made love and it wasn't just sex for her. He tells her that it was just sex to him to hurt her and it works. She starts to cry.

She tells him again how sorry she is for his father's death and how she wished she could have changed things. She tells him she is leaving the cards for him to prove that what she told him was partly the truth and tells him that at one point it became more than about the cards for her and wished they could have continued with their relationship.

Jax returns to his room to find no signs of the cards or a letter from Sam.

She gets down on the floor to pick it up at the same time he is when they end up close to each other's' faces. Brian leans in as if to kiss her but she moves her head away and tells him no.

Brian just smiles. Jason tells Michael about Carly waking up and how they are going home now. Carly gets a phone call from Sonny. She puts Michael on the phone to talk to Carly. Sonny gives her the phone. Carly picks it up and puts it to her ear but looks confused. Michael is all excited to talk to her and tells her that he missed her but will be coming home soon. Carly listens and pretends she is interested in what he is saying and puts on a fake smile. She also puts on a fake smile for Sonny when he mentions how happy he is that she is awake and how beautiful she is. Michael seems disturbed after talking on the phone to Carly and feels that something is wrong about her. Later, Alcazar goes in to see Carly while Sonny is out of the room. He tells her that her pulse spiked whenever he was in the room and the doctors told them that she was dreaming a lot based on her brain patterns. He guesses that she was dreaming about them a lot. She asks him how he knew and he tells her. He tells her that she must have felt his love for her when she was in the coma and that helped bring her back. He takes her hand to comfort her. Sonny talks to Bobbie about the kids and how they are coming home soon and that Carly needs her children with her right now. Bobbie agrees and is pleased that the kids are coming home.
Carly wakes up to find Alcazar sitting by her bedside. She seems disoriented about where she is. Alcazar tells her he won't leave her bedside. She tells him that he should leave since she is married. He tells her that he was the one she responded to when she was in a coma, not Sonny. She gets scared about his presence and asks him to leave and not to come back. He leaves. He goes home to find his niece Sage sitting at a chair. He tells her to pack her things and that she needs to head to the airport. She tells him she hates the boarding school she is going to when he tells her the headmistress will meet her at the airport. She pleads with him to enroll her at school in Port Charles. He is against it at first since he tells her she needs to be somewhere safe where she can be under supervision. She pleads with him to let her stay in Port Charles and promises to be on her best behavior and help clean the place for him to earn her keep. He agrees to let her stay. Faith comes over to Alcazar's uninvited. She mistakes Sage as a young hooker that he must have hired for his pleasure. He corrects her about Sage and how she is his niece. He tells Faith that he isn't interested in doing business with her right now and that he has more important things on his mind right now. She asks him if he is still pining away for Carly.

He asks her what she is doing there. She tells him he failed his mission to help her with the cards. He apologizes to her but explains that he had his hands full with everyone trying to get the cards from him. She takes the "dead man's hand" out of her purse. She criticizes him for not being focused and prioritizing the cards in his life. Dillon complains about her lack of motherly instincts and feels resentful about her leaving him with his crazy family. Georgie walks in wearing her usual hospital volunteer shirt. Tracy thinks she is just some volunteer and orders her to get rid of his horrible looking breakfast and informs her that the Quartermaine family practically owns the hospital. Dillon is mortified by how badly Tracy is treating Georgie. He interrupts Tracy's tirade and tells her to stop. She looks at him and he tells her that the girl she is yelling at is his girlfriend, Georgie. Tracy looks at him in disbelief and asks him if Georgie is pregnant. Dillon can't believe her nerve and explains that he is with Georgie because he wants to be with her and that Georgie is the first person to care about him and what happens to him unlike his family. Tracy can't believe that Edward and Ned allowed him to date Georgie. Georgie tries to leave them alone to talk but Dillon wants her to stay and for Tracy to apologize to her for her behavior towards her. Tracy refuses to apologize to Georgie and asks Georgie to run along and thinks she should understand how she feels being a protective mother. Georgie makes a wise crack about how she will be leaving even though Dillon hasn't had a mother around so far to help him. Tracy tells him that she plans for him to run ELQ someday. Dillon tells her he doesn't want to work for ELQ or run it someday and has plans someday to be a film director. She tells him that won't happen and that what she needs to do now that she will be staying around for awhile is to find him a father. Dillon dresses up and Georgie asks him where he is going. He tells her he is sorry for how his mother treated her. He tells her he needs to find a job that will pay more than minimum wage so he can be financially solvent to avoid living with his mother. Georgie hugs him and worries about him. Dillon goes to see Alcazar at his apartment. He tells Alcazar that he needs a job working for him so he can afford his own place to live so he can get out from under his mother's control. Alcazar tells him he doesn't have a job for him right now but Dillon is adamant about doing anything for Alcazar to get paid well enough to live on his own. Alcazar tells him he does have a job for him after all. He tells him that his niece Sage is going to be living with him now and that he wants him to watch her while he is working. Sage comes downstairs. Dillon is floored when he realizes who Sage is related to. He reacts in disbelief when he realizes he has to keep an eye on her. He asks him if it is true that he has been hired to babysit Sage. Sage just smiles in amusement when Alcazar nods that it is true.

Sam threatens to punch her in the face to show how tough she can be. Jax comes in the room and tells them to stop fighting.
